JIM ROGERS TALKS BITCOIN PRICE / U.S. DOLLAR / GOLD / FUTURE FOR THE WORLD & 2018
I doubt anything's gonna happen there but I guess all this uncertainty weighing on the Euro and that helped prop up the US Dollar which has continued to rise ever since the supposed bullish comments by Janet Yellen about hiking rates and shrinking the balance sheet. So now we're back up to about 93.50 on the US Dollar Index, gold back down about $1280 or so but I think the fundamentals are still there for the weak dollar I think this is all a bunch of noise. Jim Rogers highlighted the risks of owning Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) when a bear market in stocks eventually arrives:
"When we have the bear market, a lot of people are going to find that, ‘Oh my God, I own an ETF, and they collapsed. It went down more than anything else.’ And the reason it will go down more than anything else is because that’s what everybody owns."
Jim is a legendary investor, best-selling author and Guinness World Record holder. So when he speaks, smart investors listen.
Today, we’re sharing a few more of Jim’s insights… on fear in the market, how to buy gold and the one sector Jim is bullish on today…
How being “fearless” is good… sometimes
Millennials (or, for that matter, young people – regardless of the generation) often get a bad press. But, in a bull market, Jim Rogers believes that under-35s can make serious gains because of their fearlessness.
“When things are going right, we all need a 26-year-old. There’s nothing better than a 26-year-old in a great bull market, especially in a bubble, because they’re ’fearless‘. To youthful investors, a bull market will never end…”
Now, that’s great in a bull market. But in stormier weather when things are going south, Jim thinks that older (and perhaps wiser) heads should take the helm because fearlessness can be very dangerous in a bear market.
As Jim says, most of these under-35s don’t know why they made money in the first place. So they don’t know why they lose money. Rogers noted that he bought gold "a long time ago" and has not made any serious purchases since 2010.

I own gold and have owned gold for years, but I'm not buying or selling it at the moment."
"If and when gold goes down a lot, or under $1,000, I hope I'm smart enough to buy more gold because in the end, gold is going to go up a lot because when people lose confidence in governments and paper money, they always put their money in gold and silver."
Talking the crypto currency craze, Rogers said he wishes he had been smart enough to buy bitcoin five years ago or even as recent as five months ago. The digital currency is up some 300% since the start of the year, last trading over $3,900.
